Oban’s Robert MacIntyre took part in the ISPS Handa Vic Open last week at the thirteenth Beach Golf Club in Geelong, Australia, and although he made the cut after the first two rounds with excellent scores of 67 and 70, he failed to make the cut for the final day of the tournament, which is played on two courses and by both men and women.
Round one saw the Glencruitten left hander card an excellent five under par round of 67 on the Beach Course, with six birdies and only one bogey.
Bob then carded a two under par 70 on the Creek Course in round two, with three birdies and again only one bogey.
However, the 22-year-old struggled in a strong wind in round three and finished with a three over par 75 which still featured an excellent six birdies but two bogeys and three double bogeys which ended his interest in the tournament. Fellow Scot David Law from Aberdeen won the first place prize money of €156,250.
Bob now heads for the ISPS Handa World Super 6 Perth at Lake Karrinyup Golf Club. The competition gets under way today (February 14).
